Welcome to Braden's Kidney March Page

Your Support Means the World to Me

I hate sending these types of emails. But things got personal this year. I have been looking after people with various types of kidney disease and kidney failure for the last 16 years. But this year, it came home to roost. My brother Derek's daughter Kate became sick over Christmas. Within a few weeks, she was on dialysis. It has been a very tough last 7 months for Kate and her family. But she is resilient, and in August she will be getting a transplant from Derek. 

To raise money to support people with kidney disease, I am taking part in Kidney March - a 3 day, 100 km journey from Kananaskis to Calgary. A chronic illness so encompassing as kidney disease deserves a walk of this magnitude. I am training (actually not much really) in preparation of marching 100 km. But I need your help. My goal is to raise a minimum of $2,200. Please sponsor me.

In supporting me, you are supporting The Kidney Foundation of Canada to carry out kidney disease prevention, lifesaving research, and organ donation initiatives. By being part of Kidney March I am part of Canada’s biggest effort to date to improve kidney health. How? The Kidney Foundation is a founding partner in Can-SOLVE CKD, a Canada-wide research initiative featuring 18 projects and a $40 million investment into kidney research. Now in its second year, Can-SOLVE CKD represents the largest investment into kidney research in Canadian history. Patient volunteers helped shape the research questions, and are still involved as research progresses. The Kidney Foundation has pledged $3.35 million to make this transformational research possible. By supporting me, you are supporting this groundbreaking initiative in which Kidney Foundation donations are matched by federal and provincial governments as well as private partners.

Thank you for taking up the torch on behalf of the millions affected or at risk. A kidney crisis is looming. The time to make a difference is now. Failure is not an option.

Thanks for supporting people like Kate, 

Braden
